Engine Performance problem
1987 Chevy S-10 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 175K miles
Hey I have a Chevy S-10 pickup 2.8L 6 cyl that was recently rebuilt. It has 63 miles on it (on a rebuilt engine). When driving it at 10-30 mph it performs fine. When I drive it at 40-50 MPH when I gear down from 4th gear to 3rd when exiting the highway it stalls and then I have to restart it. Engine seems great (good rebuild) I took it to my mechanic and he said that when trucks engines are rebuilt they experience a "Burn in time" where the engine gets used to the fuel injection system or computer control. I was wondering if anyone else experienced this problem with a rebuild. The car drives fine besides that, idle seems good. How long does it take before the stalling goes away? And it there anything I should do in Particular for the first 500 miles I drive it on the new engine? Any tips would be appreaciated. Is this a common occurance for rebuilt engines?
Thanks - Josh
